Be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is” (Eph. 5:17).

  Prayer to God must come from God. There can be no prayer in the full assurance of faith apart from the known will of God in the matter. “The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know His will” (Acts 22:14).

I do not think that a petition that misses the mind of God will ever be answered (1 John 5:14). Personally, I feel the need of trusting Him to lead me in prayer as well as in other matters. I find it well to preface prayer not only by meditation but by the definite request that I may be directed into the channels of prayer to which the Holy Spirit is beckoning me (Rom. 8:26, 27).

When we once have the deep, calm assurance of His will in the matter, we put in our claim, just as a child before his father. A simple request and nothing more. No crying, no beseeching, no wrestling. No second asking, either.

The Lord may see it needful, for the trial (development) of faith, to seem for a season not to regard our supplications; yet, if we patiently and believingly continue to wait upon Him, it will be manifest in His own time, and way, that we did not call upon Him in vain.

  “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from Him” (Ps. 62:5).

Remember Quinton, he’s 2 years old and literally allergic to almost everything, his parents are frantic.

Pray for Quinton’s dad who is having hernia surgery and his wife Ann is freaking out.

Remember Joe r, and his shoulder

Steve L, and a peaceful spirit, and for his mom, 88 years old and is having lots of hurdles.
